senior tour. muroto looks winded but he has the lead. that birdie at number 10 part of his 74. he is tied with hale irwin. by the time he came to 18 he was up by two. but look how his approach to the par 5 hole ends up. he finds the green but the ball rolls off into the bunkers. he took a double bogie and fell back into a tie. at 66, irwin is trying to become the oldest player to win a pga-sanctioned event. tom watson, by the way, is one stroke back. still to come tonight on sports wrap, something that will take some getting used to. a man who
